Two years ago, I got a filling on tooth #4. Later that night I woke up in shooting stabbing pains in the filled tooth. I went to the dentist the next day and he made some adjustments. After a week, I was still in pain. I went back to the dentist; he filed my tooth down but the pain did not go away. I’ve seen different dentists; all of them said my tooth is fine and nothing showed on the x-ray. I have taken antibiotics and tried different painkillers to no avail. I got tired and had decided to just live with the pain.
It’s been two years since this problem started and the pain is still there. Two weeks ago, I started getting pain on the tooth beside the filled tooth. Does this mean the pain or infection have spread to another tooth? What do you think is the reason for the pain? Is it permanent? Any advice would be great. Thanks.
